The end of this week marks the first anniversary of Groove's acquisition by Microsoft.

It's been a fun ride so far.  We've achieved a huge amount, had a chance to work with many many smart and dedicated people in Office and other parts of this big company, and somehow managed not to ship anything yet (unless you count Beta, and customer projects, and demos, and all the rest).  RTM will be upon us so soon. Personally I've been on a roller-coaster, sometimes having a completely agoraphobic reaction to the new landscape, yet also occasionally feeling that I'm contributing to an important project in useful and meaningful ways.

And there's so much still to do.  I'm super excited looking forward to the next few years.
